In Italian the word for “steering wheel” is very similar to the word for “fly”, so I used to think that the steering wheel was a button you could push to make your car fly. I was seriously disappointed because my parents didn’t use it!

When I was little, I used to believe that there was a man in the red lights. This man had to go through the red light at the green light. When the red light was long, I thought that the man was asleep. My parents told me that I was not true. They told me it was automatic. I was reassured because I thought that the man must be tired. Today when I'm at a red light, I still think about this anecdote and I laugh...

When I was a little girl, I used to believe that if I didn't use the zebra crossing on the white stripes I would die in the lave. So everytime I saw a zebra crosing I walked just on yhe white stripes. Now when I see a zebra crossing I still think about this belife but I resist and I don't walk on the stripes !

Here's a really funny one: I used to think that when you got up on a plane to go to the loo, the pilot would stop the plane in mid-air until you're out again.

When I was about eleven we lived near an airport. It was at the height of the Cold War. The jets engines overhead sounded just like the falling bombs in all the old WWII movies. I thought the jets were from enemies who were going to bomb us.

I thought it was illegal to own a minivan if you lived in Arizona. I have no idea how I thought that.
